Hello everybody.

Last week I showed my MSX to a friend who has never seen any. I showed him games like Nemesis, USAS or Bombaman and demos like the ones from ANMA, Unknown Reality, etc.
But I felt like I'd not shown the best of MSX. Also I wanted to play a good game with him in two player mode but I couldn't think of any interesting for him.

So the question is, what do you think are the best games to show and play with a non-MSX friend?

If you're talking about 2 players at the same time I can only think of Salamander, of which I've no doubt you've thought about that one already. I don't think there're many such 2-player games on MSX, perhaps because of the sprite limit. Another player could place himself next to you, which will cost another 1 or 2 sprites on a row, which may turn out to be too much.

F-1 Spirit, but you probably thought that one already =).

Try playing Penguin adventure with a 1-button joystick. The "other player" may have his/her finger on the "M" -key Tongue

Quarth has a great 2-player co-op mode.

Super Runner ! Tongue

But you risk to lose your friend, if he's bad loser.

So many good 2 players games. Playing at the same time.

Here's a few which were not listed befor.

Blade Lords
girly block. - Suprisingly it works much better as a 2 player game.
Laydock 2
Bet Your life. - Even with the annoying slowdown. The fun factor is still good. I found it actually better as the original Super Smash tv.
Stracon - (up to 4 players. It looks not so good, but it actually can be quite a lot of fun !)

Two player games remind me of the fact I have no friends.

I´d also suggest F-1 Spirit, Super Runner and Super Laydock.

These games could be fun too for two players: Warroid, Twinbee (although it´s annoying if one player steals or change the color of your powerups), many sports games such as Konami´s Soccer or Konami´s Boxing and The Race (adapted from the Spectrum, but it´s a simple and nice racing game).

* I would like to second Laydock 2 - Last Attack, but Super Laydock - Mission Striker is also very fun, though less 'impressive' graphically, ofcourse.

* About Girly Block, if you want to give both players (or one of them) maximum stats, here's a good code:
L 5 W S C U B E

* There is also Niko², quite fun.

* And Buta Porc, it's from T&E Soft but not on Generation MSX.

* IIRC, also Akanbe Dragon can be played with 2 players.

* Don't forget about the Konami 'Party Games' like "Title Awase" (memory) and "Ago Board".
